The tech giant Google has started rolling out Android 7.1.2 (Nougat) public beta update for eligible devices, including Pixel and Pixel XL, Nexus 5X, Nexus Player, and Pixel C devices. The Nexus 6P is also eligible for the update and is expected to release soon.
Dave Burke, VP of Engineering, Google said: “Android 7.1.2 is an incremental maintenance release focused on refinements, so it includes a number of bugfixes and optimizations, along with a small number of enhancements for carriers and users.”
Android 7.1.2 Public Beta Images is currently live for Pixel, Pixel XL, Nexus Player and Pixel C devices on the Google Developers website. You can also enroll your device in automatic OTA system updates through the Android Beta Program. Once enrolled, your device will receive regular over-the-air (OTA) updates of all milestone builds in the 7.1.2 Public Beta. When the next version of Android is released, your device will automatically update to the final version. “Before you install a system image on your device, we recommend you make sure that your data (photos, etc) are backed up” says Google.
The final/stable update of the Android 7.1.2 is expected to release in a couple of months.
